Janet Adamson married to Francis Harkness
« on: Friday 02 June 17 16:28 BST (UK) »
Really struggling to find any record of Janet's birth and marriage. Have her death certificate 1888 which names her parents as Matthew Adamson and Jane Hewitt. All the census that I have put her being born in Annan and her death certificate would put her being born about 1817. Can see other records of children born to them but not Janet.....HELP please

Forrest - Blantyre
McLellan - Dumfriesshire
McCracken - Dumfriesshire
Harkness - Dumfriesshire
Adamson - Dumfriesshire
